LSG right now has 14 points from 10 games and is almost through to the playoffs. If they beat KKR they get 16 points and can easily qualify for the playoffs. With four matches remaining including the one against the Knights, Lucknow will back themselves to get to 18 to 20 points. KL Rahul is the leading run-scorer of the team. Apart from him Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda are in good form.

KKR won their previous match against Rajasthan Royals after getting defeated consecutively in five matches. Despite the win, their position in the playoffs isn’t fixed and that creates major concerns about their opening combination. Aaron Finch was the highest scorer against RR since his 58 helped the team to win. The main challenge the team faces is consistency. Shreyas Iyer is the skipper of the team.

LSG vs KKR: Match Prediction

Lucknow was beaten in the previous game by Delhi Capitals but KKR won against RR. The former team have been one of the most consistent sides in this tournament and has won seven of their 10 matches and has 14 points to their tally with a superior NNR of +0.397. KKR on the other hand might have beaten RR but which will surely boost their confidence but they need to showcase perfection in all their remaining matches in order to qualify for the playoffs. LSG has a better chance to win tomorrow’s match if we go by the track record of IPL 2022.
